Hello and Welcome to my humble abode on the web. I invite you to check out my latest posts along the right side.Here you will find information about my past, current, and future projects, as well as my endeavors to bring awareness of other authors and great books I find along my journey.
My first novel, “Beginnings, Family Heritage Book 1” is the story of James Michael Keller. This urban fantasy has been a life’s dream of mine and I am so happy to share it with you.
“High school is hard enough on its own, but Mike Keller is facing something much worse. His headaches take a strange turn one Saturday night when he ‘sees’ an imminent car crash. Warning his friend Darrell in the nick of time, the two teens avoid a surely fatal collision. Mike’s ‘visions’ become more frequent over the next few days, bringing notoriety this wallflower preferred to avoid. The exception being his childhood friend Colleen Nicholson. Though they have drifted apart, he still nurses a huge crush on the head cheerleader.
Mike’s confusion mounts over the visions while being buried under a mountain of homework. When a bully picks a fight, something darker rears up inside of Mike’s mind. Who or what is stalking around school, spying on Mike and his classmates. Can Mike keep the Darkness at bay while courting his first love?
Love, loss, murder and psychic powers; How is Mike supposed to study for finals with all of this?”
In October of 2019, I released Book Two of my Family Heritage Series, “Through Darkness to Light“. Book Two follows Mike’s journey to his uncle’s home in Washington State, where his legacy is revealed. As Mike tries to navigate the loss of his first love and his new powers, a threat arises in the form of the Council of Elders: a group of families gifted as he is.
My second published work, “Haunting of House 1273” is a haunted house novella that began as a weird dream that stuck with me long after I woke up one morning.
“The McKinney family is embarking on a new adventure, moving from Philadelphia to a suburb in the Midwest. Matthew is upset with his parents for dragging him from his home and friends the summer before his senior year. A decade old family secret threatens the tentative peace the trio manage to eke out in their new home. Within days all three are tortured by visions they can’t fully explain. Matthew and his mother both see a little girl holding a doll and hear strange music. David finds a creature of black stalking his every move. A strange voice seems to call to each of them, playing on their fear and reluctance to talk to each other about what they are going through.
With the help of Karen, the girl next door, Matthew tries to piece together the history of his new address. Can he save his family and end the haunting at 1273 Marigold Lane?”
